          One of the criteria for this selection was a 10K walking goal each day. In addition to this were several excursions and cultural experiences that brought us closer to understanding the New Zealand and Maori relationship with nature and each other. There... Show more

          Based on pictures I had seen from New Zealand, I expected to be immersed in beauty. But I had no idea how delightful this trip would be. From the food, to the accommodations, to the amazing guides, this truly was one of the best things that I have ever... Show more

          This trip was beyond fabulous. Dan and Kelsey were the perfect guides for us! They adapted the walks for us given we are a little older and live in a very flat state. All hotels were awesome! If I had to change anything, it would be the trip to Waiheke... Show more
